Small Grants from INASP – just a reminder

Well, you may think this is a bit early, but it is time to start thinking through how these grants might fulfil something that really would make a difference to your library clients, or your fellow librarians.

INASPs Small Grants come in two sizes:  up to 2,ooo USD and up to 10,000 USD. The deadline for proposals in both categories is 30th June, 2012.

2000 USD might go towards “development of activities such as institutional/national training, peer experience exchange visits, mentoring, skills transfer and case studies.”

10,000 USD  needs to be innovative, sustainable and provide solutions to “supporting research or access” on a national or regional level.

More information is available here. Note there is a lot of competition for these grants and the words “up to” have great significance.

I work with Partnerships in Health Information which promotes the exchange of experience between libraries in the UK and Africa. I used to be the Clinical Sciences Librarian at the University of Leicester and since taking up my work with PHI have visited Kenya, Mali, Uganda and Zambia, but the best part has been meeting colleagues involved with all aspects of health information in Africa as a whole.
